tsview(1) Timestep Viewer


tsview basename [-no_transparency]


This little program uses the IlluMultiLoad() function from Illuminator to read in distributed array data saved as multiple files by IlluMultiSave(). The files are saved as a pair per CPU (per timestep), one holding metadata, and the other the data themselves, optionally compressed. The multi-CPU data are combined on one CPU into a single dataset and visualized.

When run, tsview first presents a list of candidate timesteps for viewing with index numbers for each. It then displays the first of the timesteps, and allows the user to interactively flip through the others, and their Fourier transforms. Type h or ? to see a list of available commands.


Display contour surfaces as opaque (3-D only).


None (that I know of).
